The methodology is explained in the original post.https://plus.google.com/u/0/107040353898400532534/posts/JtmZFHiJf2xA minor update was offered in October.https://plus.google.com/u/0/107040353898400532534/posts/eeHNhQAZX6wThis update is the list of the people with the most followers (in this case greater than 35 k, with high interaction (Klout score > 60), and engaging (based on comments per post).I may be incorporating Kred next year as there have been some issues with +Klout Please note the circle does not include everyone in the list.At the bottom of the first list, you will find a second list of all the Google plus users with greater than 35k followers who did not have a Klout score for ranking.This is only a first draft, people. Please don't be upset if you were left out or if there are mistakes. It takes a lot of work to compile this and I will publish a new list and circle with corrections.Also please note that precise rankings are meaningless due to the standard error of measurement involved in Klout scores. Many thanks to +CircleCount for making this job considerably easier.I also want to thank +Amanda Blain for all her suggestions over the various months on how to improve this list.As always, I welcome your suggestions and corrections.Please let me know of any corrections for the final list to be published before the end of the year.If I missed you, please let me know.

I told him he needed to broaden his horizons and said I could share some circles. I'm actually too lazy and distracted to curate a distinct, public circle of my own, so I'm borrowing this old circle I took from +Andreas Schou. Two slight tweaks to this circle 1) I added Andreas himself to the circle, because I don't think you show up in your own circles, and 2) I was in the original version of this circle, but I think I was dropped for the same reason.

|David Bee||7,731||This is a Circle that I compiled of G+ users around the world who support the re-election of Barack Obama as President of the U.S. While Obama has certainly not been perfect, we believe that he has been working diligently to improve the U.S. and bring the world's communities closer together. In the face of unprecedented unwillingness on the part of the Republicans in Congress to support his efforts, he has achieved many positive goals. http://pleasecutthecrap.typepad.com/main/what-has-obama-done-since-january-20-2009.htmlWe feel that a Romney presidency would bring us back to the George W. Bush days of reckless wars, less bank and Wall Street regulations, and a dwindling social safety net.Add a comment to this post if you wish to join, and I'll gladly add you in. If your aim is to find fault with Obama, this Circle isn't for you. Go create your own Romney Circle if you wish. If your name was added to this Circle in error, please let me know and I will promptly remove you.This circle is dedicated to a world with less conflict, less hunger and more cooperation between nations.please share widely #obama #obama2012||2012-07-30 01:32:00||149||29||8||18||CC G+|

The circle includes everyone with a Klout score higher than 75 plus selected other users from this list that offer great content or honest intelligent discussion to bring it up to a round 200. Excluded from the circle are those that have not posted recently on Google+. I have left room in the circle for the people that may have been missed in this second draft. At the bottom, you will find those who have more than 50 000 followers and an unknown klout score.

|Rotimi Oyewole||12,342||G+ Starter CircleI'm noticing that some of my friends are using G+ a little more which is cool. I don't want to be the only one posting on their stream, so I've come up with a pretty eclectic circle that I think would please almost anyone starting out on here. Yes, there are quite a few tech people, but I've also got artists, comedians, economists, journalists, musicians, and normal, average, non-famous people who post regularly here. I think 30 is pretty manageable so you won't be too overwhelmed, and I tried to pick people who's posts might appeal to a broad audience.I've found the best way to handle shared circles is to add them all into a new circle (I call mine Inbox). Every now and then I look at my Inbox circle and unfollow anyone who doesn't really fit in my stream.

In 1974, President Richard Nixon’s health-care plan proposed forcing employers to pay 75 percent of the cost of basic health insurance for their employees, with some breaks for small businesses.
In 1994, President Bill Clinton proposed forcing employers to pay 80 percent of the cost of basic heath insurance for their employees, though a somewhat confusing series of caps meant that smaller businesses would end up paying much less.
But by 2010, health reformers had learned their lesson. They asked almost nothing of business. And last night, the Obama administration decided to ask even less.

On Monday, simply by doing absolutely nothing, the 113th Congress allowed the interest rate on student loans to double, from 3.4 percent to 6.8 percent. That might be permissible if they were busy with more important things, like inventing a cure for cancer that’s also a source of endless clean energy. But they’re not even working this week.

How can Republicans who think the government farsighted enough to peer 30 years into our economic future, competent enough to lock down 2,000 miles of sand and brush and trustworthy enough to oversee a massive domestic surveillance program can keep alive the fiction that they are truly skeptical of the government? Or are they just skeptical of government when it’s doing things they don’t like?

By all rights, Bitcoin users should've gone nuts in May. But prices stayed flat. Why?

We’ve recovered 91 percent of the wealth lost since 2007. After adjusting for inflation and population growth, that falls to 45 percent. And after adjusting for the unequal nature of the recovery, that falls even lower for the average household.
Did I forget to say “happy Friday”? #economy

Fighting illicit drugs is all about raising the price people have to pay to get them. So why do they keep getting cheaper?

When people say they believe in “equality of opportunity,” they really mean they believe in “sufficiency of opportunity.” #politics

Imagine how odd it would be to read an article saying that the people who work for manufacturing firms are really just out to make money, or that they don’t seem interested enough in current events. It is only because Silicon Valley has done such an extraordinary job branding itself that articles about their social conscience, or lack thereof, seem completely reasonable.

This may be my favorite thing we've ever posted on Wonkblog. At least it's the one that made me laugh the most.

Obamacare is looking good in the largest state in the nation. And if California can make Obamacare work, it'll be proof that every other state can, too. #healthcare

Forget trying to make Apple pay higher taxes. How about if we don’t make them pay any taxes at all? #apple

It's hard to fire civil servants. But in this case, it needs to be done -- and that's true even if the I.R.S. didn't intend to politicize its process. #politics

Just 16 minutes before a gigantic twister formed near Oklahoma City on Tuesday, the National Weather Service put out a tornado warning. That's not much time. Why can't we get those warnings earlier?

The New York Times reported Thursday that President Obama frequently fantasizes to close aides about “going Bulworth,” a reference to the 1998 movie in which Sen. Jay Bulworth, played by Warren Beatty, drops all pretense and begins saying exactly what he thinks. So I asked a number of ex-Obama aides and political consultants what the president would say if he went Bulworth?

So everybody says that 2012 proved the Republican Party needs a total overhaul. But political scientist John Sides says -- with data! -- that everybody is wrong.

We pay $94 for a doctor's visit, Canadians pay $30. We pay $914 for an angiogram, the French pay $264. We pay $40,000 for a hip replacement, the British pay $11,000. We pay $4,300 for a day in the hospital, the Dutch pay $730. I could go on....

Dizzying but invisible depth
You just went to the Google home page.
Simple, isn't it?
What just actually happened?
Well, when you know a bit of about how browsers work, it's not quite that simple. You've just put into play HTTP, HTML, CSS, ECMAscript, and more. Those are actually such incredibly complex technologies that they'll make any engineer dizzy if they think about them too much, and such that no single company can deal with that entire complexity.

The ad is meant to make you feel better about watching football. It’s meant to show how the NFL has made the game safer, with pads and and helmets and rules. Instead, it shows how it’s made the game more dangerous, making it easier for the players to hit harder, last longer, endure more trauma. And it shows how we’re complicit, too. Even as the ad is meant to assuage our guilt about the game’s violence, it’s all about the game’s violence — it’s one big hit after another, because that’s why we tune in, that’s why we like to watch. The ad celebrates the NFL’s sobriety by ordering everyone a round of shots.

Hosting the Rachel Maddow show tonight. We've got lots of fiscal cliff news, and Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK) to react to it. Plus, I plan to actually say the sentence "but one is a mouse and the other is Snoop Dogg" on a primetime news show. And it will make sense! Tune in!
